New in the sub-menu on the right: Cover Stories:
a leaf through most of the music albums and DVDs that Jimmy can be heard or seen on
Jimmy can be heard on hundreds of recordings! It is not the intention here: to list every recording Jimmy can be heard on. An exhaustive and mostly accurate list can be found at for anyone so interested. It is a handy reference we see no reason to duplicate on Jimmy’s website.
The recordings listed here are intended to be representative. Excluded are recordings where Jimmy’s contribution is incidental or minor, or where duplication occurs, such as where a 7” single draws songs from an LP album. Included recordings are either notable, in an historical sense, such as those with the Mothers of Invention; or are those where Jimmy plays a central or collaborative role; or are recordings released by Jimmy either on his own label (Inkanish Records) or other independent labels; or are those mentioned by Jimmy in his book.
